    How to install Office 2010, 2013, 2016 & maybe 2019 side by side on same Win 8.1 for comparison?

    - I know Outlook does not allow from multiple Generations so that's fine.
    - Also aware that of some side by side articles of 2 Generations of Office possible.

    Wondering if ALL are possible or certain combinations are / versus not?

    PPS: Once installed could they be activated via KMS? Even if not thats fine as its a TEST to check & compare some stuff.

    2010 > 2013 > 2016 all msi works fine (at least on activation level)

    2016 msi & 2019 c2r cannot co-exist
    2016 c2r & 2019 c2r can, but worthless (2019 is literally 2016 v2)

    Office 2016 MSI is easier to use

    yes, 2016/2019 C2R work with 2010/2013 MSI
    note: 2019 is blocked on Win 7 & 8.1

    Thanks for those insights.

    - Installed 2016 via VL ISO - Easier in what way? (To install or use? or Both - How?)
    - Nice. Thanks - might have to try that.
    So no ISOs etc to download right.. C2R right from MS?
    How & where - is there an MDL tutorial I can follow to do both & then KMS them.
    - By design, but there seems to be ways/ tutorials to force/ get around. - One you recommend / link?

    @abbodi1406

    Trying to get into the nuance of how to get this done.

    I read it, but the question is "what steps does this entail" and on which Tool
    Yaoctri vs Office R Tool or pre install licenses via some KMS tool before doing Office C2R and choosing O 2019 or O 2016 from Yaoctri or ORTool menus in correct steps

    @abbodi1406 @Windows_Addict - I currently have Office 2010, 2013 and 2016 installed on Win 8.1
    I was using MTK for so long but it doesnt actviate all the Office Versions without repeated deactivation.

    Q1: Is there a better fool proof tool that will activate all of the above? KMS ALL ?

    Q2: What would be better ways to ASSIGN/ CONTROL/ CHANGE the Default version of Program between the various versions?

    Why don't you use a virtual machine if it's just for testing purposes? Easy peasy, didly weasy.
